I would like to hit a drum pad in Kong... which would trigger some kind of gate that would allow a syncopated snare (set to 16th or whatever to be heard ). When I take my finger off the drum pad the syncopated snare would not be heard. Bonus if we could get velocity in the mix playing a role in some way.....

Not sure how I would go about setting this up.

Any ideas?

The most simple way to do this imho is to load the Kong pad with prepared snare rolls/sequences.

Quad note generator or Note repeat ?

Hmmmm, I've got gate output from Kong into Thor routing its gate to an envelope, then routing that envlope out cv1 output which controls the volume of a combinator patch that has 16th note snare always running. Almost there.... sounds a bit off.

You can do this with the step sequencer in Thor.

1. Flip the rack
2. Take the [gate out] of the kick of Kong into [cv1] in of Thor.
3. Take the [gate/velocity] of the step sequencer cv output and route this in the [gate in] of the snare of Kong.
2. In the modulation matrix input: cv1, value: 100, output: Step sequencer trig.
3. Step sequencer on 1-shot
4. Choose the desired settings in the step sequencer for example:
- speed 1/16
- length 4 steps.

5. select the gates in the step sequencer you want to be played.


edit: and for velocity modulation you can also use the Thor matrix modulating the velocity of the step sequencer (:
